Can't find it? Just build it

I was trying to find a nice and simple rack to fit my axles and tranny gages. All I could find was plastic crap with angles coming out of a star wars movie. I finally decided to build my own.
Thank god I have friends that own metal shops.

Material: aluminium 3 mm

First off, a stop at the cutting shop.
Computer assisted Water jet cutting machine.





Then a little stop at the metal press shop.


A little paint job by myself.


Fitting the gages.


finished product


A little wire ring and the install.




All done in 1 hour.

I think that I am going to do a lot more stuff myself. At least I get what I want and don't have to compromise.

Next step... I am making an aluminium dashboard.
